What Is Tennis Elbow?
As noted above, tennis elbow (also known as lateral epicondylitis) is an inflammation of the elbow joint caused by overuse. While the pain is generally located on the lateral side of the elbow, it may also be felt down the forearm, causing significant discomfort. Pain is often felt when one fully extends their arm.
Approximately 50% of tennis players will develop tennis elbow, hence the association between the condition and the sport. However, tennis elbow can affect anyone and is caused by repetitive motions. This can include everyday household chores and other sports, such as golf and swimming. People who regularly use a computer may also experience elbow pain, as can those who work in the construction industry.
Elbow pain generally starts out as mild discomfort, but can gradually become worse without treatment. Those experiencing elbow pain may find that they have a weak grip and increased discomfort when squeezing an object or shaking hands. They may also experience pain when using tools, typing, or lifting objects.
Physical Therapy for Elbow Pain
While surgery may be required to treat elbow pain, around 90% of cases are successfully treated with non-surgical interventions. Physical therapy is highly effective in treating elbow pain. At nMotion Physical Therapy, we utilize a range of exercises that aim to strengthen the forearm muscles and promote healing.
